    What other explanation is there? Khabib made it very clear, he's not fighting again. A title fight between Conor and Dustin makes perfect sense, even if it's an Interim. Dana's going to prolong this as much as he cans just to avoid a possible nightmare situation of dealing with Conor as the champ again.

    Tbf, a guy that's 3-2 the last 5 years doesn't deserve to fight for the title...

    It's pretty obvious Conor does what Coinor wants. This is bad for ufc even if he is their biggest cash cow. No fighter can be allowed to become bigger than the brand.

    Frankie Edgar said that Conor runs the whole show and that the letter "C" in UFC stands for Conor McGregor.

    Given the current climate and Khabib retiring Conor is their biggest draw, even if they may not like Conor being champion, Conor being champion will benefit the UFC. It will bring back more eyes to the UFC, the extra attention is good for every fighter in the UFC and benefits everyone. UFC is the brand, but the brand still needs fighters that the general public will recognize and be familiar with. No one comes close to Conor in that regard at the current moment.

    Zuffa Boxing seems to still be happening, so the extra attention that will come from other combat sports, especially boxing will benefit future events. Pacquaio vs McGregor can very well happen with Zuffa Boxing involved, Mayweather was originally supposed to work with Dana on a project before covid-19, so I can see that partnership continuing on in the future.

    There were rumors of Dana trying to sign Canelo, when Canelo became a free agent after leaving GoldenBoy and DAZN.

    Imagine thinking McTapper deserves a title shot.

    He would be a firm favourite over anyone apart from Khabib

    Khabib is an emotional kid, dana knows him for years now so he doesnt buy this new aura people think khabib has as a solid leader that wont budge, ali is wispering like satan in his ears to come back

    dana is betting that khabib will mourn for a year then miss fighting amd come back like every single fucking athlete does, even better if dana matches makhachev with some knockout artist to get him out of the way for khabib to come back.

    the red goof got this shit on lock dont worry

    Conor made Dana pimp his piss and leaked their DMs. Goof has to be salty. Also, Fight Island really set UFC up for some potential middle east business that's lackluster without a Khabib type on the roster.

    No, Dana want to try and get at least 1 more fight out of Khabib and it’s less likely to happen if he doesn’t retain his belt. McGregor as the champ again with Kahbib retired would be Dana’s wettest dream come true.

    He would get smashed by Tony, Gaethje, and probably Olivera, wrestlefucked by Machachev, and Chandler and will likely get beaten by Poirier.

    He can beat cans like Felder, Sanchez, Cerrone and maybe Edgar.

    Anyone who thinks 1 win in 4 years is deserving of a title shot, and not even at the weight class he wants a title shot in, is completely delusional and an obvious McTapper dickrider.

    Can't wait for Poirier to end him in embarrassing fashion, and he can finally fuck off for good.

    They may love it or hate it, but they will be forced to accept it.

    It seems like Khabib has new goals now, could be politics like his father was doing. He has the influence and connections, could also be part of the reason he retired early. He is moving past fighting and working on other stuff now. I don't think he's coming back, maybe for a GSP fight but that's it.

    Probably, every time he gets his hands on a belt makes it near impossible for the UFC to book a fight for him, even when he doesnt have one...

    True, but Holm might disagree lol, she has got way too many title fights.

    Dana and the UFC want Khabib to fight again and if they already strip the belt off him, or if Conor is the interim champ, they know he's less likely to come back.

    Not to mention his last LW victory was in 2016. Guy shouldn't even be ranked in the top 10 at LW if we're being real. Let alone top 5.

    And why isn’t he the champion anymore? Oh that’s right, he was stripped for never defending.

    Conor as the champion is the last thing the UFC wants or needs. Despite what his fanbois think. He is only a small part of the entire company. And if he were gifted another undeserved title shot. If he were to win, he’d just sit out again and not defend. That does NOT make the UFC money. At least if they make him fight a contender fight first. They get a minimum of two fights from the guy before he can play diva non-defender again. Instead of just one.

    It’s just business.
